Welcome to Analyze Boulder 59!

Analyze Boulder is a community of data geeks who live, work, and play in Boulder, Colorado.

The first Wednesday of every month, our members give fast, accessible, high-energy TED-style talks once a month on any data topic. Contact us (http://speakers.analyzeboulder.com/) if you want to present at a future event.

We start with social time / beer from 6-6:30pm, followed by the live event, and then we stick around and chat over beers afterwards. You can also join the event via our live stream (see below).

Please bring cash to contribute for beer. The evening's speaker lineup:

Bill Anderson will share information on using machine learning to detect cybersecurity breaches, including plots illustrating the data and how the machine learning approach could benefit others.

Rachel Stephens found naming her child to be a fraught activity, so applied her inner data geek to finding the right one, starting with requirement gathering/exploratory process, an analysis of 135 years of Social Security name trends in R, and a final decision matrix in Excel.

Ben Robertson will demonstrate a system for analyzing movement in rodents, which is problematic using commercial motion capture technology, yet critical since rodents constitute most pre-clinical models of movement disorder (e.g. MS, Stroke, Duschenne's, Spinal Cord Injury) for intervention development.

Join the Live Stream Here at 6:30 PM MST
